Jonah Hill’in geçtiğimiz yıllarda Los Angeles Lakers bench’inde çektirdiği bir fotoğrafı sosyal medya şakalarında sıkça kullanılıyordu. Kobe Bryant, Jonah Hill’in tepkisiz-komik suratı ve fotoğrafı çeken Hill’in ağabeyi Jordan Feldstein’ın ancak ucundan fotoğrafa girebilmesi bir selfie faciası olarak dikkat çekmişti.
Aradan yıllar geçtikten sonra bu fotoğraf Jonah Hill için trajik bir hal aldı. Hill, hem en sevdiği spor yıldızı Kobe Bryant’ı, hem de ağabeyi Jordan’ı kaybetti.
Hill, duygularını Instagram’dan paylaşırken “Bu fotoğrafa günlerdir doğru olduğuna inanamadan, üzüntü ve aynı zamanda mutlulukla bakıyorum. Benim en sevdiğim fotoğraf ve bana en zor ve inanılmaz şeylerin nasıl geçip gittiğini anlıyorum. Geçici olmaları onları daha az güzel yapmıyor.” sözlerini kullandı.

This picture became a funny internet thing years back and it always made me laugh when I’d see memes of it . I used to love “on purpose, very awkward photos” whenever I was around someone I respected and this is about as comically awkward as it gets. Ah, your early 20s. It’s a dumb bit but I really liked it at the time. I hesitate to post this as it’s usually connected to humor. But for me this photo represents a LOT more. I’m sitting next to my brother and he’s taking this. It was the night we both met Kobe and he was so nice to us. So funny, so amazing and so kind (in the middle of a game!). My brother and I grew up worshiping the Lakers and because of my job we got to sit next to Kobe and the whole team! I have lived a privileged life. Truly. We were literally buzzing with excitement to meet our hero and it’s one of my favorite memories ever. It’s my favorite memory with my brother . I’m sitting between Kobe and my brother and now they’re both gone. I have been staring at this photo for days in disbelief and sadness and joy. It’s my favorite picture and I think it represents for me, all of the hard and amazing things in life and how fleeting they are. But their fleeting nature doesn’t make them any less beautiful. I’ve been thinking a lot about saying Rest In Peace and what that means. But I don’t think Kobe or my brother are resting. I think they’re hustling up there. Working hard and getting shit done. Cuz that’s what they do. All my love to the ones here left behind. Take care of each other and love each other . That’s the lesson I’ve learned . ❤️
